Clicking on links in Thunderbird doesn't pop up a browser window
 
Its just one of those little annoying things that has happened, and I can't click on help either for some reason, maybe because its an html document also. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Valhalla,

I might be completely wrong, but for me, thunderbird opens the links in the default browser (firefox) without changing to it.

Yeah, I have my default browser set as /usr/bin/firefox $U just like it is in my K Menu tree. I've also tried it w/ konqueror's internet side. No go on both.

prefs.js
 
Put this in your prefs.js:

user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "/usr/local/firefox/firefox");

(or wherever you put firefox. /usr/bin/firefox I guess)

You must do this while thunderbird is not running or it will just overwrite the file.

Thanks Justin,

That helped me with exactly the same irritating niggle.
